New Reason for visit options

We have added the following Reason for visit options when scheduling an appointment: 

Registration: Health card tip update

Previously, when registering for a VirtualCare account, the system would ask for the last four digits of a patient’s health card number. The field itself would display a value reading 1234. For improved usability, we have updated this field to read 0000 to signify that information must be entered into the field.

Visit notes now update in real-time

Previously, if a doctor submitted visit notes a nurse would have to refresh the page in order to review what was submitted. This process has been updated and the Visit notes now display in real-time.

Visit details page: New Encounter ID field

To identify and track specific encounters within a visit, we have added a new Encounter ID field to a visit’s details. 

Note: This field is optional.

When a patient selects French as their language for the application, the patient consent form now displays in French.

Updated lab requisition and diagnostic imaging forms
